I am using Enercalc a lot and for many years. Practically all structural engineers I know use it.
The program has some glitches - and what program does not? Even a slide rule sometimes many need adjustment (I remember waxing the slider in mine). But other than these glitches - which, in my opinion, are really negligible and expeditiously fixed - Enercalc is a great powerful tool that helps thousands of engineers. I know about several programs that tried to do what Enercalc does - to my knowledge, nobody was as successful as Mike Brooks.
Now, if Mr. Grassley's post would say - such and such module has such and such problems, and Enercalc wouldn't fix them in such and such time - this would be another story. The reality, however, is quite different (refer to Mike Brooks' post). Mr. Grassley's post does not contain any facts, just negative and unsubstantiated opinions.
I cannot come up with any reason why any engineer would write anything like what Mr. Grassley did. However, we all have our bad days; in this case, a simple apology from Mr. Grassley will make it right.
Professionally, I am quite comfortable with Mike Brooks' program (I checked it manually many times); ethically, I am equally comfortable with his response.
